Cannot install package bind with yum


Hello,

I have Red Hat 6 installed on a Virtual Box VM and I am following some basic Red Hat tutorials. Here is my current one:

http://www.unix-tutorials.com/go.php?id=747

Under the section, "Caching Nameserver", I am having issues with installing bind, bind-chroot, and caching-nameserver.

Steps taken:

1. rpm -q bind (returns Not Installed)
2. rpm -q bind-utils (returns Not Installed)
3. rpm -q bind-libs (returns Not Installed)
4. rpm -q bind-chroot (returns Not Installed)
5. rpm -q caching-nameserver (returns Not Installed)
6. yum install bind (returns "You must register with rhn")
7. Registered with RHN through GUI ("System" menu).
8. yum install bind (returns "No package bind available")
9. yum install bind-utils (success)
10. yum install bind-libs (success)
11. yum install bind-chroot ("No package bind-chroot available")
12. yum install caching-nameserver ("No package caching-nameserver available")
13. Googled.
14. chkconfig rhsmcertd off
15. service rhsmcertd stop
16. yum install bind (returns "No package bind available")
17. Google.
18. Enabled rhel-source & rhel-source-beta in /etc/yum.repos.d/rhel-source.repo
18a. yum clean all
18b. yum list bind
19. yum install bind (returns "No package bind available").
20. yum install bind-chroot (returns "No package bind available")
21. yum install caching-nameserver(returns "No package bind available")

Thanks for any help. Please let me know if I can post additional info.

Try putting "#" in front of what you need,
Example the command is:
# yum makecache
# yum install bind

and try these (after the above installs):

yum install bind*
yum install caching-nameserver

Hope all goes well.

On CentOS bind is found in the standard "updates" repo, I imagine RHEL has something similar unless you've disabled it. Have you tried a search?
Code:
yum search bind
or
Code:
yum list | grep bind

"#" makes it a comment...putting a "#" before anything on the command line will cause it to do exactly nothing.

If you are paying for REDHAT, then you can always call REDHAT support.

You are paying for it, correct?

I have a 30 day evaluation copy. Unsure if I can call them. It's not too critical at this juncture.

After using "yum search bind" and "yum list | grep bind", it appears that there is not package for bind. Noob question: I am using RHEL 6.0. Is the bind package only available for a server-type distro?

Edit: I did post on the red hat site. Thanks for the tip. Any further suggestions will be appreciated and I will update if I get back good feedback from red hat.

unless you ARE GOING !!! to pay redhat the $299 per YEAR for the standard support contract

install the free rebuild
CentOS 6.4

now if you NEED the redhat support then buy the license

also you might want to read throu some very basic tutorials and guides
you need to learn what a $ or a # or a > means in the tutorials
">" or "$" as a normal non root user
the "#" normally designates you are doing this as ROOT

some basic guides
http://rute.2038bug.com/rute.html.gz
http://tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginners-G...tml/index.html
http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Bash-Prompt-HOWTO/
http://www.howtoforge.com/

Also keep in mind that RHEL6.4 is a "server grade" os and is NOT a good choice for a home general purpose Computer
